Chery has freshly launched the new Tiggo 8 Pro Max, especially in the Middle East, Central and South America markets. The most upscale SUV from the Chinese manufacturer introduces several new features. Detail review.
The Tiggo SUV range has always aroused the interest of premium SUV enthusiasts and surfed the wave of success, given their fashionable design, their well-stocked equipment, their performance and their proven road holding. It should be noted that alongside the Tiggo 8 Pro, Tiggo 7 Pro, Tiggo 4 Pro SUV and the Arrizo 6 Pro sedan, the Tiggo 8 Pro Max has recently come to strengthen this famous Pro family from Chery.
Precisely, as an innovation-oriented company, Chery Automobile has consolidated strong technical advantages for many years, especially in automotive engine research and development capability. Taking into account this development experience of more than 20 years, the Chinese car manufacturer has developed its own technical systems. Thus, the research and development team dedicated to engines, which has more than 1,000 members, developed a new engine block in 48 months; in this case the 2.0 liter TGDI which now takes place under the hood of the Tiggo 8 Pro Max.
In detail, the performance of this block has improved by 55%, its overall mechanical efficiency reaching 96%. As a result, this engine can easily generate a maximum power of 187 kW and a maximum torque of 390 Nm. Thanks to the efficiency of the DCT automatic transmission, the Tiggo 8 Pro Max sprints from 0 to 100 km/h in just 7. 3 seconds, easily outperforming most competitors. Need we point out that on this same block, Chery managed to obtain an ultra-low fuel consumption of only 7 liters per 100 kilometers.
To increase its ability to cross the most rugged terrain, the new Tiggo 8 Pro Max inherits a new generation of the intelligent electric 4 wheel drive (4WD) control system, able to adapt to all surfaces. Indeed, as a pioneering Chinese brand in the development of this technology, along with the world’s best suppliers, Chery Automobile has been able to rely on a long history of 20 years of technological exploration, research and development.
By adopting 4WD technology from ZF, a world-class automotive supplier, the Chinese brand has developed a current 4WD system with all the steps it requires, after integration and re-calibration. In detail, this 4WD system has 6 driving modes: economy, normal, sport, camping, skiing and off-road, covering all categories and road conditions, and providing customers with excellent driving experience.
In addition, thanks to its high torque, the Chery Tiggo 8 Pro Max can easily cross puddles, mud and other heavily degraded surfaces. Enough to allow customers to progress with complete peace of mind whatever the driving conditions.
Need it be said that the Chery Tiggo 8 Pro Max can move safely on steep slopes with a maximum incline of 45%. It can easily switch to four-wheel drive in less than a second and even at high speeds. Enough to offer customers a stable ride without the risk of slipping or tipping over in any type of weather and to facilitate long journeys and other journeys.
Needless to say, Chery is committed to changing the lifestyle of car owners around the world, expanding its reach and improving customers’ quality of life through new products.
